    Hi all,
    I am thinking about distributing this material in Europe and was wondering if there is a general interest for it. First I only want to make a small order of maybe 300$ and see how it goes. But first I want to know how you like it and weather you would want it to be available in Europe. So let me know what you think.

    It is epoxy resin that has been poured into an aluminium honeycomb structure.

    i think that this material is just awesome, it looks like a futiristic material.
    i'm quite sure that a lot of people will love it
     

  3. Moin moin,

    I find the material of the lens great ...
    question:
    What is the process? Is there a clip to which you can see how easy or difficult it is to process ....?
    The dimensions?
    And colors?
    And of course the price?

    Link's?

    Frage:
    Wie ist die Verarbeitung? Gibt es ein Clip dazu, das man sieht, wie leicht, oder schwer es zu verarbeiten ist....?
    Die Abmessungen?
    Und Farben?
    Und natürlich der Preis???

    Link´s???

    They can mix almost any colour apart from white.

    They can make them translucent.

    The material is an aluminium Honeycomb with epoxy inside. So it should be easy to work.

    I don't know the exact dimensions yet but they will be large enough for slingshots or pistol grips.

    I like it. If the price were reasonable, I'd consider buying some. Reminds me a bit of carbon fiber. I assume the plan would be to create sheets of this material and sell it that way?

    I´m in for something if you go for the "semi-transparent" stuff.

    I always planned to buy a larger package of kirinite and c-tek from those US-Knifesuppiles...but it needs time to use it all...and time is rare :(

    I have got the sizes now.They come in 15x15cm, 12x21cm or 30x30cm. I think the smallest is the best? That fits the entire area of a slingshot. Or makes two sides of a knife or pistol handle.

    Are most people interested in Translucent Resin?

    30 x 30

    I think 30 x 30 is best- One sheet will be enough for at least three slingshots..

    15 x 15 will make 2 per SS necessary- 4 will make 2 SS (if covered completely)

    but what about the price? do you plan to make real profit?
    - wouldn´t it be nice to share that order?- some "reward" for the effort,
    some xtra sheets maybe, no shipping costs for organising the order?
    Then some money for packing and shipping all to us?

    I think it would be nice to mix as many colors as possible.. then share
    15 x 30 pieces??

    But thats just my thinking!- how did youplan to render that?

    Greetings,

    as far as i know, working with it is nearly similar to kirinite.
